About the webinar:

The From Santiago to Shenzhen report focuses on the development and implementation of battery electric buses (BEBs) and details the steps cities must take to electrify their bus fleet, with recommendations and lessons learned on policies and frameworks that city governments should consider when scaling BEB implementation.

In this webinar, presenters from ITDP’s India and Indonesia offices will discuss the current efforts of cities to deploy and scale battery electric buses and microbuses (Angkots) by highlighting national & local policies, different financial tools & instruments, and some early lessons learned to create a meaningful roadmap for BEBs.
